Norfork Lake fishing and lake conditions by Scuba Steve from Blackburns Resort and Boat rental (click here for comments)

Caught fishing with Binks yesterday. Nice walleye.Image title

The lake level is 552.55 and stable with just a bit of generation.  It is at a very good level. The surface temperature is 86 degrees and we are having chances of rain for the next several days. We have received some about everytime we needed it this summer but it is still dry. Not bad for August. The leaves are starting to fall from my walnut trees and that is right on schedule. We should be seeing the nightime lows dropping a bit soon. Diving is not the best right now with the visibility being pretty bad. It is still OK down to 20-feet with a mud line after that and better in the cold water at 30+ feet but no fish there. I have been diving from the Cranfield area to Tracy and to the Diamond bay area and have found very little change in the visibility. I very seldom go further south than that. Nothing there for me. The fish are in the bad visibility area now but that will change with the water temps dropping. There are some bass and crappie on brush at the 20-ft. level but they are roaming in and out on the bait fish. I did get one nice walleye on the bottom in 22-feet yesterday but it was the only one I saw.  Bait fish are everywhere and growing rapidly with lots of baby bass and bluegill everywhere there is cover.  Bink is on the walleye and Tom Stanton is getting some good stripers everyday near Cranfield. The lake is in excellent condition for boating and water sports. Blackburns was full yesterday but have several leaving today creating openings. You can get a 1-bedroom cabin for $75/day with a free boat stall and all cabins are individual with no duplexes and all have covered porches. There are 11-rental pontoons to choose from starting at $105/day plus fuel. Prices drop drastically after Labor day. We have peace and quiet here.
